SHOULD BE SIMPLE, BUT I CANNOT CHANGE THE FILL/BACK COLOR OF A TOGGLE BUTTON
IN A FORM. I CAN CHANGE THE TEXT COLOR, BUT NOT THE TOGGLE. I CAN CHANGE THE
FILL/BACK COLOR OF A TEXT BOX, BUT NOT THE TOGGLE. ANY SUGGESTIONS? THANKS.

Access does not provide methods for changing the BackColor of ToggleButtons or
CommandButtons. You can use a colored bitmap as the picture property.

My first suggestion is to STOP using all caps. It is considered rude and
a form of SHOUTING within a post.

There is no exposed/supported method to change the BackColor property of
a ToggleButton control. The CommandButton Backcolor control solution on
my site will work with ToogleButton controls as well.
http://www.lebans.com/cmdbutton.htm
CommandButton.zip is a database containing functions to allow a user
defined BackColor and Rotated Text for Command Buttons.

NEW - Jan. 26/2000 This version includes 2 functions. One for Form
Design view and one for Form View at Runtime.

1) Use API Color Dialog to select BackColor.

2) User Selectable degrees of rotation for Text in controls Caption.

3) Use in Form Design or Form View at Runtime.



Version 1.1

Now supports ToggleButton controls as well as CommandButton controls.

BUG FIX JAN. 31,2000 -> I forgot to include the code to delete the
temporary Bitmap file that is created by the function. I had over 3000
of them in my Temp folder! Stupid is as stupid does. :-(

There's nothing fabricated about it. When people read, they do not, as you
might think, look at individual letters. They recognize words by their
shape, only falling back on individual letters when they fail to recognize
the shape of a word. When you use block capitals, because capital letters
lack the ascenders and descenders of lowercase letters, words lose their
characteristic shape, and become harder to read.

The spammers and script-kiddies have succeeded in making it impossible for
me to use a real e-mail address in public newsgroups. E-mail replies to
this post will be deleted without being read. Any e-mail claiming to be
from brenreyn at indigo dot ie that is not digitally signed by me with a
GlobalSign digital certificate is a forgery and should be deleted without
being read. Follow-up questions should in general be posted to the
newsgroup, but if you have a good reason to send me e-mail, you'll find
a useable e-mail address at the URL above.

I do not "speak" PLONK. Everone, all I did was post a harmelss question, and
while completely unaware of the inappropriateness of using all caps, my
intention was absolutely harmless as well. I reponded to you and said thank
you for your help and your reply is "PLONK"? I'm sure this isn't nice, but
please let me know. Are all people treated with such disdain on this
newsgroup? All I need is a little help with my database--not a bunch of
criticism from people with too much free time. Thanks for your patronizing
assistance.

Thanks! This is good to know. For some reason, I have an easier time typing,
reading, and writing in all caps--in this western language. And dammit, I'm
still a good & smart person for it.

PLONK is a common way of indicating that you've been added to someone's
ignore list. You'd better hope you don't need help with advanced features
now, because you ain't going to get it anymore from one of the most
knowledgable contributors to these newsgroups!

I would suspect that the reason for being plonked was your juvenile attempt
at humour when you changed your Subject Line to alternating case and your
comment that you "don't really believe in this sort of fabricated etiquite".
It doesn't really matter whether or not you agree with what's considered
standard netiquette for newsgroups. People like Stephen and myself are
unpaid volunteers that answer questions in the newsgroups as a service to
others. As such, we feel perfectly justified in chosing to ignore posts when
they're difficult to read.
